call role here. it is, in fact, the sanctions regime that has supported internationally through u.n. security council resolutions, u.s. actions, both in the congress and through the executive branch by the president, by the european union and other nations that has brought iran to the table. because they are looking for sanctions relief. so i understand why the congress believes that more sanctions can only be better. i agree up to a point because that's what brought them to the table. but, in fact, sanctions were meant to change the strategic calculus of iran to come to that negotiating table. now we have to test that resolve to get to an agreement. and any more sanctions at this moment by the u.s. congress would undermine the agreement which calls for a pause by everybody in that regard. and, in fact, might give them an excuse to depart from the agreement that's been made. >> ifill: but in lifting or easing those sanctions, even for six months, even for a temporary period, don't you lose some leverage. isn't that the argument members of congress are making. >> they made that argum

, into the western european and others group at the u.n. in geneva. we fought hard for that. but think of the new markets that would open up and the bridges between people that peace would build, think of the flood of foreign investment and business opportunities that would come to israel and how that would change the lives of everyday people throughout the region. as stanley fischer, the former governor of the bank of israel said, a peace agreement with the palestinians could boost israel's gdp in a short period of time by as much as 6%. israel would also enjoy a normal , peaceful relationship the moment this agreement is signed with 22 arab nations and 35 muslim nations -- 57 countries in all. it is not beyond our imagination to envision that a new order could be established in the middle east, in which countries like jordan, morocco, a newly independent palestine and an internationally recognized jewish state of israel joined together to promote stability and peace. ben gurion knew from the start that if his young state were to do more than just survive, if israel were to succeed, it would nee

that the president has announced ignores not only u.s. law but ignores the u.n. sanctions that are in place. and it also ignores the fact that iran has not made any concessions in this area in the last 30 years. it also ignores the position that this deal puts israel in, one that is untenable and more impossible than any i have seen in my lifetime. the naivity of this administration in dealing with iran is something that is simply breathtaking. mr. speaker, i would just suggest to you that if iran gains nuclear weapons, we will need a new calendar. it will change our reality in the world that much. and i would say to you that while there's still time, we need to act. d you know, mr. speaker, there is that moment in the life of every problem when it is big enough to be seen and still small enough to be addressed but in terms of iran's nuclear weapons pursuit, that window is closing quickly. and whatever this body can do, whatever this president can do to prevent iran from gaining a nuclear weapons capability must be done soon because soon they will have the ability to ignore our treaties and

prime minister netanyahu's speech before the u.n., it occurred nearly a week after the iranian president spoke before the international body. before that, i want to yield back to my friend from illinois and just as we continue this conversation, again, history matters. and what has gone on in the past, i believe, is very crucial in understand whige many of us on the hill bipartisanly do not trust the iranian regime and i yield to my friend. mr. schneider: thank you. i think it's critical to emphasize the bipartisan aspect of the support in congress for a sanctioned regime and the security and protection of our allies, in particular israel. as my colleague mentioned, in october, i with luke messer authored a letter to the president calling on him to push forward with sanctions. there were 78 members of the freshman class who signed on to that letter, republican and democrat, standing shoulder to shoulder, saying we must be strong. again this can't be -- the interim agreement cannot move to anything near what is a permanent agreement. more importantly, it cannot lead to the collapse of the
